Glowing ropy pahoehoe lava from Kilauea volcano (Hawaii) at night (Mar 2017).
This type of lava texture is commonly found on the Hawaiian shield volcanoes which produce vast lava flow fields of relatively fluid basalt lava. Kilauea volcano is the best location to observe this fascinating type of lava in activity from close. (Photo: Tom Pfeiffer)
